Title: Stay Clean Jolene (BandCamp, Dead Broke Rekerds, Rad Girlfriends Records, Drunken Sailor Records, Bomb Out Records, Just Say No to Government Music Records, Amazon, iTunes)
Stay Clean Jolene’s self-titled full-length debut is a blast of everything that is good in punk rock right now. Mixing big hooks with bigger choruses, Stay Clean Jolene finds that perfect spot that is equal parts Leatherface, Dillinger Four, The Bouncing Souls, Iron Chic, and Chris Wollard & the Ship Thieves, making songs that are catchy as hell, full of energy, and a joy to listen to. In a way I’m not really sure what else to say about this record other than it is fucking brilliant and one of the best of the year. Seriously, go out and get this right now.
